Years ago, at an estate sale I came across this butter dish.
It was love at first site.
The asking price? $25.00...WAY out of my league.
I had $15 on me. Would they take it?
Then came the little story of the butter dish. It had belonged to Grandma. Was always on her table for every meal. They remembered it fondly, like every other piece they were having to sell. Bits and pieces from their past. Treasures from their memories.
I will not "buy to re-sell".
I will give it a good home. It will not be "on display", but used daily.
It will become piece from my life, for my children, and my childrens children, to look back on some day and remember fondly.
It is now "Memere's butter dish".
And the sweet little bowl to it's left?
Part of a birthday package from Joy at savvycityfarmer.
It holds "Raw Sugar", which incidentally is NO healthier than the white stuff, just looks prettier!
